God of War III patched, fixes wireless controller issues
Recently, gamers have been reporting some issues regarding the controls in God of War III. Sony has taken notice of this and released a patch a few hours ago.
So what exactly was the problem? Here‘s what an admin from the official God of War forums had to say:
First off, we’d like to thank the fans and media for the incredible reception that God of War III has received. As you may be aware, some customers have had issues with their wireless controllers while playing God of War III. In some cases this has resulted in difficulty opening chests (holding down R1) or jumping/gliding (holding down X). The problem has occurred randomly in environments where there are multiple Wi-Fi devices within range of the PlayStation 3. It is not an issue with the PS3 system, but an issue with reading data coming from the wireless controller.
We take a great deal of pride in the smooth responsiveness of God of War III, therefore I’m pleased to report that we’ve taken appropriate steps to fix this problem. We’ve released a minor patch today in North America and Europe to address this issue and we will follow up with the same patch early next week for our customers in Japan, Korea, and Asia. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused. Thank you again for continuing to support God of War.
The update is only 5377KBs and won’t take long to download at all. Kratos’ vengeance will only be prolonged for a brief moment, thankfully.
